Poland held despite Brożek double

Bosnia and Herzegovina 2-2 Poland
Paweł Brożek scored twice but the UEFA EURO 2012 co-hosts were pegged back each time in a friendly at the Mardan Stadium in Antalya, Turkey.

Bosnia-Herzegovina came from behind twice to earn a 2-2 draw against Poland in their friendly at the Mardan Stadium in Antalya, Turkey.

In a match where both sides fielded mainly home-based players, Paweł Brożek struck twice for the UEFA EURO 2012 co-hosts but their opponents, who lie fourth in qualifying Group D, equalised on two occasions through Muhamed Subašić and Zvjezdan Misimović's penalty.

Poland dominated the game from the outset with Ibrahim Sahić parrying a second-minute drive from Adrian Mierzejewski, then expertly claiming Kamil Grosicki's cross. But the goalkeeper was left helpless after seven minutes as Brożek found the far corner and the Wisła Kraków forward nearly doubled his tally in the 15th minute when he struck the post.

Bosnia and Herzegovina responded, however, and from Misimović's free-kick Subasić volleyed the equaliser past Grzegorz Sandomierski on 23 minutes. Franciszek Smuda's side finished the half stronger, though, with shots from Grzegorz Wojtkowiak and Grosicki cleared off the line by Semir Kerla.

Poland edged in front again seven minutes into the second half when Brożek latched on to Szymon Pawłowski through ball and finished confidently but the lead lasted just three minutes this time as Misimović was brought down in the box by Hubert Wołąkiewicz before scoring from the penalty spot. Bosnia and Herzegovina resume their qualifying campaign at home to Romania on 26 March.
